While diamonds have become ubiquitous in terms of jewelry, especially for engagements and weddings, many investors still have questions and concerns about using diamonds for investment purposes. That’s particularly true for fancy colored diamonds, which can fetch amazing prices at auction — potential buyers often believe they are only suitable for the very rich, or have concerns about whether such diamonds are safe to use for investment purposes.

He ends by touching on how a diamond-trading platform could affect the diamond market.
